Apartment On The River

Marco Baldassa as Architects

The project involves the renovation of an old apartment in the historic center of Vicenza, located along the banks of the Bacchiglione River.


An in-depth study of the research into the creation of new formal, material and chromatic relationships between the existing structural elements and the new furnishing elements has accompanied the entire construction phase of the project with redefinitions of the design solution even during the course of the work.


The intervention foresees the redefinition of the internal spaces through the demolition of the useless walls, to obtain a more dynamic fruition of the rooms, with the opening of new passages and the enlargement of the spaces with the aim of bringing natural light in depth.


The central load-bearing brick pillar that emerged during the demolition work has taken on the role of a pivotal element of the entire space of the house, full of changing views and interior views.


The materials used, such as wood for the floor and some custom-designed furniture, the kitchen with the natural stone island and the brass lamps, are linked and emphasized by the walls left white.


The texture of the new oak wood floor changes direction and rotates to "accompany" the vertical internal volumes that with their geometric irregularity characterize the house.
